The Results Are In: Recast "Designing Women"

The Results Are In: Recast "Designing Women"

Every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I post a Recast challenge, where I ask you to choose new actors for a classic TV show or movie and the winner gets a BuzzSugar t-shirt!

Last week, we considered "Designing Women," the show about four sassy Southern belles (and an ex-con) who run an interior-design business. Oddly, of all of the classics we've Recast so far — from Casablanca to "Cheers" — this one elicited the most hew and cry about tampering with perfection.

But you persevered with some clever choices: WhiplashGirlchild's paired "SNL" alums Amy Poehler as Mary Jo and Tim Meadow as Anthony, and PinkRabbit also had some great ideas, including Melanie Lynskey for the Suzanne Role. But there can only be one winner, and that's Sweet Tea, so congratulations! To see her picks and the new cast photo,

Sweet Tea's Cast:
Julia Sugarbaker: Mary-Louise Parker
Suzanne Sugarbaker: Kristin Chenoweth
Mary Jo Shively: Emily Procter
Charlene Frazier Stillfield: Jane Krakowski
Anthony Bouvier: D.L. Hughley

I'm not seeing Jane Krakowski in that role, maybe as the later cast mate BJ (i think that was her name) but rock on.

LOL D.L. Hughley's face! LOL way to give Kristen Chenowith another vehicle to use her talents. hopefully she would rock this show better than her post-Wicked endeavors. bleh.
